It was another eventful day at Bridgton Sports Camp, folks. Today marked our first Suit-Up Saturday, where Hockey Majors and Counsellors divvy up into 2 teams (the Wacky Warthogs and the Powerful Pelicans) and go head to head against one another. The game was a close one, but most importantly everyone played hard and had a ball doing it.
Our BSC 15 and under Basketball Team took their turn at the Indian Acres Camp tournament, and picked up a big Win (49-21) against Fryeburg Academy, which put them in 3rd seed and into the semi-finals. As our BSC squad took on Winoca in the second preliminary game they also matched up in the playoff. With valiant efforts from every man on the bench, BSC went into the half down 1. After a recuperation and some coaching adjustments, BSC kept the game close as they rounded into the final minutes holding a 6 point gap. After several strategic fouls, BSC dropped the semi final 38-26. Not to worry, coaches came back to camp raving about the brilliant effort and excellent sportsmanship of the BSC team. It was something to be proud of!
Lacrosse coaches were also very complimentary of BSC campers today. New players were making big moves on the field and our tenacious goalies maintained some amazing energy in spite of extreme heat. One camper in particular, has the right to be proud after coming up ‘Sharks & Minnows’ champion 2 days in a row. Can he make it 3?
There were lots of notable plays and athletes among our Minors today too, making for 10+ shout-outs at line-up today. In Flag Football, coaches and campers bore witness to a few amazing touch-downs, while a few campers nailed the target each and every time in Archery this morning. Knee-boarders and Wake-boarders had a blast out on the water, doing some tricks and enjoying life on the lake.
